Parmesan Pasta

4.9 from 14 reviews

A delectable creamy garlic Parmesan Pasta that is made easy in one pot.  The perfect side dish for Grilled Marinated Chicken, roasted pork tenderloin or chicken spedini.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 12 ounces linguine or fettuccine pasta
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (or 1 teaspoon dried)


  1. Melt butter in a large pot or skillet over medium low heat.  Add garlic and cook for 1 minute stirring constantly.
  2. Add chicken broth, milk and cream.  Bring to low boil.  Add pasta and gently boil until tender; 15-20 minutes.  Reduce heat to low and stir in the Parmesan Cheese until melted.
  3. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve.


  • You can use several different pasta shapes in this recipe such as linguine, fettuccine, small shells, penne, elbow, radiatore or cavatelli.  The cooking time might vary by a few minutes so keep checking to see when the pasta is tender.
  • Use freshly grated Parmesan cheese in this recipe.  The flavor is worth every penny and it melts perfectly unlike the stuff in the canister.
  • If the pasta becomes too thick just add a little chicken broth, milk and cream in the same proportions as the recipe.  It is hard to mess this one up.
  • Cook the pasta over a very low boil stirring frequently.  Try to keep the pasta under the liquid adding more chicken broth, milk and cream in same recipe proportions if necessary.
  • Both rotisserie cooked chicken and skillet sauteed lemon shrimp are delicious when added to the pasta upon completion.
